Putting Science into Standards (PSIS) workshop – circular technologies for the construction industry

CEN, CENELEC, and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) anually carry out a ‘foresight on standardization’ initiative named Putting Science into Standards (PSIS)  The 2023 PSIS workshop will take place online on 12-13 December 2023, and will focus on Circular technologies for construction. This PSIS workshop will facilitate the exchange of views on standardization needs for implementing circular technologies in the construction sector. Aims of the workshop: specify circular principles to a more sustainable circular economy in the construction ecosystem, covering design to de-construction and end-of-life scenarios in all stages of current and subsequent life cycles; reflect on the finding of the gap analysis developed by CEN/TC 350/SC 1 “Circular economy in the construction sector”; collect additional stakeholders’ needs to complement the gap analysis and define future standardization priorities; encourage participation of scientific community into future standardization activities. Registration is yet to open. More information can be found on the official announcement.     Background information: The construction sector is one of the priority areas addressed by the Circular Economy Action Plan of the European Green Deal. The sector is responsible for over 35% of the EU’s total waste generation, with construction and demolition waste being one of the most significant waste streams. The uptake of circular economy in the construction sector is influenced by policies scattered in areas ranging from the Waste Framework Directive to the Construction Products Regulation and product standards, with a consequent need for effective coordination.

ScreenME - Enhancing excellence in screen media entrepreneurship

The Horizon2020 twinning project ScreenME has as its objective to enhance excellence in screen media entrepreneurship at Tallinn University (TLU). To do so, ScreenME has established a network of universities across Europe that aim to improve research into and teaching of entrepreneurship for the screen media industry. ScreenME will develop a teaching course and will kick off research initiatives and projects on entrepreneurial activities in media organisations. The research group on ‘Studies in Media, Innovation and Technology (SMIT)’ of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) is partner in the network and is involved in two cross-cutting activities of the project: support for early stage researchers and developing stakeholder involvement.
